Synopsis for "Sleaze Factor"
Intergang rebuilds and reopens the abandoned Happyland amusement park with the help of the Toyman and Thaddeus Killgrave to use it as a front for their criminal operations. But they are unaware that the Apokoliptian Sleez also uses the facility to kidnap children and other civilians. The cops don't take long to appear, and Intergang is forced to do something to keep their illegal activities secret. Toyman, worried about the kids' well-being, activates some giant robots to locate the children, but they terrorize the civilians instead. Superman gets to the scene and incapacitates the robots. But one of them, controlled by Toyman, finds Sleeze's hideout and diverts Superman's attention to the Apokoliptian.
During the battle, Superman ends in a hall full of robot versions of the Justice League, who attack him only to be destroyed with ease. Toyman shows up and offers Superman his help to find the missing children. Together, they stop Sleeze and save the kids. The Apokoliptian tries to escape in Killgrave's ship, but Toyman rigs the rocket to explode, leaving no trace of Sleeze.
Gillespie, acting as the park's manager and owner, lies to Superman and the authorities, saying they had no idea of Toyman's involvement with the park's attractions. Intergang decides to temporarily end Toyman's association with them, and they continue with their illegal operations behind the park's facade.
